Did It Again by Marina-Shads Did It Again by Marina-Shads
- What?! What's this? I thought you said th-
- Yeah yeah, I know I said I'd cut down the fanart. But I couldn't help myself! There, I did another fanart. Sue me!

It's not my fault Avatar's so... addicting. And inspirational. And awesome. And... all the pretty things in the world! And don't you just love them as kids? I simply love Azula and Ursa. And Zuko and Azula as brother and sister when they were little! Hope it doesn't look like Ursa is pulling Azula's ear, though, 'cause she's not. She's just putting Azula's hair behind her ear. Mothers tend to do that when they explain with love something to their child, something they definitely must make their child understand. Well... mine does that, anyway.

I don't know if you can tell what happened so I'll explain: Azula pulled another prank on Mai and Zuko (notice the two blushing, hint hint). Maybe she made Zuko fall over Mai again? Or maybe something even worse, lol. She has a sick pleasure to embarrass those two, I guess. And they told Ursa what happened. Part of her was amused, part of her knew she had to reprimand Azula.
Azula: Oh please, mother, it wasn't that much of a big deal. Ty Lee and I were just having fun.

For the background I used a refference from a screenshot of the Zuko Alone episode. Also the textures are from here:

poor Azula :s

This is so cute and well done. my favorite part would have to be Ty Lee in the background. Her eating that apple and popping up behind the embarrassed Mai and Zuko cracked me up. Her expression is so perky, like nothing even happened! :rofl:
Wonderful job overall! :D

Beautifully done! Your style is so much like the one on the show! Very very nice! Can't wait till I get to some of the later episodes where they start talking about the firebender characters more. Just as Azula and the others came onto the scene I had to quit watching so now I'm going to start watching on Netflix.

I love how in character this seems. Like, if there were a scene like this from the past this is exactly how it would be.

oh this is so lovely drawn :3
I love Zuko`s mom, she is so kind and caring. You did a good job portraying her.
The embarrassed looks on Zuko`s and Mai´s face is great, makes me smile XD

I like this and Ty Lee looks so Ty Lee-like. I love it. Makes me want to go watch the series again.
JadeStoneDragon Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012
Aww, this is sweet. I love how Ty is just eating in the background. Ursa's so beautiful, and the look on her face just hurts because it's so clear she loves Azula, but....NYAAAAAAAGH. *eaten by feels*

This is excellent! I like the story/inspiration behind this scene. Plus it's nice to see a somewhat positive moment with Ursa and Azula. Good artwork, too.

They are so adorable!
I loved seeing them as kids in the series. I really like their expressions, it's a gorgeous picture you've made! :D
crisurdiales Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012
Superb! Nice to get some Ursa/Azula time also, in the series there's so little one would think Ursa really didn't care about Zula .. :(

haha Ty lee is just eating an apple like none of this has anything to do with her :rofl:
dragoeniex Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012
Even if she's just in the bg, Ty Lee is my favorite here.

"If I keep smiling and acting all innocent, nobody gets mad at me. Must remember this for later..."

The expressions are good on all of them, though, and I like how you placed them. This is a good mother-daughter moment, even if Azula's not having much fun. And Ursa's sleeves are as elegant as they were in the show. Love those golden ribbon thingies. Zuko doesn't seem satisfied with the "reprimand" his sister's getting.

The only thing I'd suggest (and I may be wrong about this anyway)... Shouldn't Zuko be wearing a little flame piece in his hair too, or was he not during that flashback? Seems like standard prince/princess wear, and I know he wears it during the first part of season 3 at the palace.
empressofmelnibone Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
Actually when they were this age Zuko was just there, his father was "a prince" and not in line for Fire Lord because Iroh was the heir and that headpiece was only worn by those in direct line for the throne. If you remember the flashback to Iroh at the siege of Ba Sing Se he has a headpiece and so does that picture of Lu Ten at the makeshift grave Iroh has for his sons birthday in Tales of Ba Sing Se. So the headpiece is only worn by those in direct succession for the throne or at-least that's my opinion from what I've seen from canon.
dragoeniex Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
Sounds plausible, but Ursa and Azula are shown as wearing the flame pieces here. And Ursa at least did wear hers in Zuko's flashback.

Maybe without the red and gold bases, they're just decoration and/or signs of nobility.
empressofmelnibone Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013
yeah maybe.
Marina-Shads Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I originally drew him one, but then I watched again the flashback and apparently he doesn't have one. Probably he gets it later.
Anyway, thanks! Zuko's actually still embarrassed from what his sister did to him and Mai. Maybe made him fall over Mai again? ((:
And I loved Ursa's golden ribbon thingies, too, as soon as I saw them in the show!
dragoeniex Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012
That sounds right. He probably has his, and just wasn't wearing it at the time. Required for formal situations, but optional for every day- something like that.

Oh yes, he looks embarrassed too. :P

Hrm. Maybe Azula changed things up and had Mai fall on Zuko somehow. Whatever she did, the pic is definitely cute.
Marina-Shads Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Probably, who knows!
And yes, that's probably what she did, she's a cute little devil.

KenchirotheTogekiss Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
I like this one! I am glad the Avatar creators decided to go into their childhoods. I still wanna know why Azula is so crazy! ;_;
kitten320 Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2012
No love from Ursa and Iroh and tyrant father saying 24/7 that killing and torturing is good.

That's more than enough reasons for someone to become evil when none of the adults ever really bothered to explain what are real positive actions to her, whole positive attention went to Zuko.

And it looks like the only times Ursa ever talked to Azula was to scold her for bullying Zuko... Azula did deserve it but I think Ursa really should have paid more attention to her. At even younger age than we saw Azula in flashback...

Image wise I really like it, wish it was really like that^^
